One of my few big complaints about the new serieses is that they've reinterpretted Daleks as *individually* unstoppable killing machines. In my mind, that was never what made Daleks scary. What made them scary was that collectively, they're relentless. Sure, you can kill one Dalek. You can kill a thousand Daleks. And they'll just keep coming. Well, right up until they have to climb a staircase. Then they're stuck until the camera cuts away and the Dalek somehow finds a way up off-camera.
